Pelagios is funded by JISC under the GECO (Geospatial Engagement and Community Outreach) activity. In all #jiscGEO has some twelve "15/10" geo projects, whose common overall aims include increasing the use of geospatial tools, establishing a trajectory for embedding geospatial resources within a research and learning environment, and promoting best practice (particularly interoperability) for transferring knowledge from specialist to user. Subjects range from working with trainee science teachers or monitoring the spread of moths with a smart phone app to making use of geospatial tools for solving real world problems and visualizing urban energy reduction. Pelagios is proud to be associated with these efforts and hopes that its work can help contribute to GECO’s overarching purpose to foster communities of users of geospatial resources (data, services and support).
